Using the Amherst Writers and Artists method, Susan Wallach provides a safe and encouraging atmosphere to write, using prompts (evocative prose, poetry, photos, and props) to spark creative voice. An adult writing workshop starts Monday, JunLime 23, and runs through Monday, July 28, at Butterfield Library, 10 Morris Ave., from 7 to 9 p.m. The cost is $120 for two one-hour sessions for six weeks and is limited to eight participants. Pre-registration required. To register or make inquiries, email [email protected].
Participants will explore and take risks in writing. Everyone has their own voice and stories to tell, whether the stories stem from imagination or memory.
This is your workshop if you always wanted to write but think you’re not a writer, are a writer and need encouragement/inspiration, are blocked or don’t know how to move forward, or want to hone your craft and explore stories for personal memoir.
Wallach, an accredited Amherst leader, was an editor at Random House, and is a published author. Other projects include ghostwriting for Holt Henry Books for Young Readers and Temple University Press.
